GOP Reps Expose Dems Games With COVID Relief

The $1.9 trillion package, complete with billions in earmarks comparable to those in the first two rounds, passed a Democrat-controlled House on Saturday morning by a margin of just seven votes — and it was a hot topic at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference, where prominent conservatives lampooned the development both on and offstage.

“This bill is trash. It’s actually an atrocity, if you really think about it,” Rep. Byron Donalds said in an on-site interview with The Western Journal in Orlando, Florida. “Only 9 percent of this bill actually goes towards COVID-19. Nine. Percent.”

“What we’re not doing is making sure that the checks are going to people who actually have lost their job and are not back to work.”

 

As the House Republican Study Committee was quick to point out this month, however, the most recent plan is also loaded with an abundance of “special interest pork and other liberal goodies,” the sum of which led members to allege the bill was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to “pay off” progressive voters for their loyalty in the 2020 election.

According to a recent memo circulated by HRSC Chairman Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana, those so-called payoffs included an incremental minimum wage increase, state bailouts, climate “justice” spending and direct payments to families that include illegal immigrants.

Prominent left-wing organizations like Planned Parenthood would also be made eligible for financial support, and another $130 billion was earmarked to schools that had, in previous packages, received $110 billion for universal reopening efforts that have failed to take place.

“The worst part of this bill, the absolute worst is the pork,” Donalds told The Western Journal.

One of few congressmen deemed perfect by Citizens Against Government Waste in their fiscal voting record, McClintock was at the Capitol with Donalds on Saturday morning cast a “nay” vote.

When the two arrived at CPAC later that afternoon, the senior congressman told The Western Journal it was not simply about numbers on a piece of paper, but the Americans who would one day be forced to foot the bill for such projects.

“People have to understand what it means to their families,” McClintock said. “That’s not a theoretical number.”

“Your family is going to have to repay through their future taxes, tax-driven price increases, inflation and lower wages as businesses pass along their costs”

“People need to start asking themselves, that’s the car they won’t be able to afford in the future, that’s the home they won’t be able to qualify for in the future,” he said.

“All of that comes out of our future earnings as families.”
